The first inaugural Palm Springs Fashion Weekend made Fashion Splash in the Coachella Valley as one of the hippest and most fashionable events of the season held at the Hard Rock Hotel Palm Springs resort from October 25-27, 2013 featuring hottest collections for Spring 2014.
Troupe Productions, executives Jim Casey, Kim Waltrip and Trini Garza partnered up with The Gallery LA's Mikey Koffman, owner/producer of LA Fashion Weekend, Fashion Splash, and Palm Springs Fashion Weekend to produce live entertainment and fashion show trading the conventional runway for a poolside fun with major success results --Resort Meets Fashion!
The temperature of 89 degrees on the Saturday evening of October 26, with the sultry desert breeze in air while stars twinkled above the venue. The ceremony commenced at 9:00 pm by the poolside where Palm Spring's Mayors, Steve Pougnet, welcomed 500 guests and presented a proclamation to Palm Springs Fashion Weekend. “The City of Palm Springs is tremendously excited to welcome the inaugural Palm Springs Fashion Weekend.” said Pougnet. "We truly are like no place else!”. The evening was followed by a night of contemporary collections reflecting modern women from Le Mali Designs and Unique Vintage and a haute-couture red carpet gowns from Shail K. The classic pieces were showcased given an edgy-glam twist with this a futuristic look.
For Saturday evening, I adapted the "Bohemian Goddess" look with a blend of bohemian and vintage wardrobe intergrading the desert-oasis trend. I wore a floral print Tory Burch kaftan with gold Tory Burch sandals. Since I forgot to pack my accessories back at home, I added a black cross-body bag designed with multi-color crystals that I bought from a boutique in Palm Springs prior attending this event. I've completed the look by adding a vintage floral Chanel scarf around my head for the final touch and voila! I was ready to rock the red carpet!
Kicking of the two-day fashion fun, a stylish-pool party was held on Sunday, October 27, under a warm glow of the desert sun at the Hard Rock Hotel Palm Springs resort where AMP Radio 97.1 played fresh jams.
Palm Springs Fashion Weekend was a three-day glamour and fashion affair dazzling the lights in the city of Palm Springs.
